Thank you Brewster for the update. Thanks also for your humility in offering an apology. However I don't think anyone here needed an apology from you guys. You’ve always done all you could to keep as much music as possible available to us. Sure we sometimes bitch and moan that you aren't being as transparent as we like, but that's our problem not yours.

The party that needs to apologize is GDP, specifically Mr. McNally. His disingenuous remarks regarding the reason for the shows being pulled, and his totally dishonest accusations regarding IA not building 'community' and not representing ‘Grateful Dead Values’ is without excuse.

It is wonderful to have OUR auds back, and being able to stream the boards is a privilege we should all value. Had this arrangement been brokered between the band and IA in the beginning, without the ‘spin’ and lies, they would have avoided much unnecessary ill will.

Congrats to IA on going from 'not representing Grateful Dead Values' to being granted permision to host Auds and boards all in one day! You rock!!

What a joke, only not funny at all. Bring back the SBD's! They were being actively traded before this fabulous site ever came about. I'm just dumbfounded reading about Bob, Mick and Bill. WTF?!?!?!? Never thought I'd see the day. Remember guys, "let there be songs to fill the air".

Funny thing is, I own EVERY Dick's Picks along with a shiteload of other GDM stuff. Access to all the wonderful Boards sure didn't stop me from opening my wallet. Wonder what affect NOT having access to those very same boards may have on my spending habits? "Well I know only this" GDM won't like it one bit. I'm done spending. I'll just sit back and enjoy my AUDs.

To Brewster & Co: Thanks and keep up the good work.
